🎉 James’ Tips

This week we take a look at an example with some strong positives to raise performance and achieve a 7.0, as well as some common mistakes that students too oft make in Hong Kong.

🔖 This essay was produced by a Hong Kong working professional working in one of the hospitals, who is currently targeting a 7.0.
Comments:

📍 THE IMPORTANCE OF A STRONG FINISH.
Task Achievement solid.
Coherence and cohesion ample.
Grammatical range evident yet with one significant error of a broken down sentence or instance of solecism.
Grammatical accuracy evidences persistent errors such as with passive voice, parsing or parts of speech, awkward prepositions, missing subjects, a very damaging error, and missing determiners or indefinite article, as well as overuse of the definite article, a minor error in terms of the detrimental impact on performance.

One hiccup with a complex sentence essentially derailed the attempt, as well as some collocation and parsing issues.
A strong plus, however, in the conclusion paragraph served to raise performance considerably, as the sample demonstrates as advised, a triple example of at least 3 complex conjunctions, and fortunately, with zero mistakes. If the paper had just a few less errors, this would definitely be a reliable 7.0

🔖 Elite 好消息分享,IELTS Appeal 成功例子!
我地有位同學仔申請 Appeal 成功啦!Bambi 一開始一心打算報幾堂就去考試,很明顯第一次的成績當然不太好。之後發現準備唔夠其後直接再報了最少堂數的課程。雖然他英文不算差但一般都知道IELTS也挺重視技巧,所以對於分數有要求的學生都明白碰運氣是不可靠。

最近他考到很不錯的成績,只是跟他的目標還差一點點。由於 Speaking 只有 6.5 而其它的papers都達標,所以Bambi決定申請 Appeal,最後由 6.5 去到 7,完成了他 All band 7的移民夢。📈

在這裏分享多少少… …Bambi 英文本身不錯所以他只報了最少課堂的課程,後來他心急要考到所以 Elite 針對了他的情況,給他一個最佳建議去安排上課。最後,他花了很短時間只上了 Writing 的小班加幾堂的單對單就考到理想成績。

🎉 James’ Tips

This week we have a look at probably the singular most common mistake in HK-Chinglish that basically all of the candidates who fall below a 7.0 invariably make.

The following essay was written by a working HK professional in the IT industry who is currently targeting a 7.0 yet consistently achieves only a band 6.0.
.
✅❎ James’ comment on the student’s work:

The most common mistake the candidate, like so many others, repeatedly makes, is incoherence due to confusing the singularity or plurality of subject verb, indicated repeatedly in the essay by an S unequal to a P for singular and plural dissonance.

Next the candidate makes parsing errors, confusing verbs with nouns and in the process likewise confusing prepositions, all now corrected.

Spelling errors are not tolerated at the 7.0 band level.
Lexical Resource is somewhat limited and while not an absolute disqualification, nonetheless the candidate could benefit by improving the lexical arsenal.
Some very serious errors of solecism, or flat out broken sentences, are noted, and corrected, indicating the candidate’s gaucherie or inability at handling more complex sentence structures.

While some complex sentences are evident, many of these are arbitrary and inept clearly evidence of the candidate’s attempt at complex sentences merely for the sake of it without clear understanding of the nuance and syntax of the English language.

Finally, some third person singular conjugation errors are noted.

A single instance of singular plural incoherence, or third person singular error, or parsing error, will immediately lower an otherwise acceptable 7.0 down to a 6.0 and
only IF the candidate has a preponderance of watertight complex sentences will it then be upgraded to a 6.5, but in any case, all singular plural incoherence, third person singular, parsing, or use of infinitives instead of proper conjugation and participle, as well as indefinite article singular usage versus plural, are game over headshots as far as a 7.0 is concerned.

This essay is consistent with a 6.0, despite the presence of a modicum of complex sentences, which are the only saving grace that did not render the essay a 5.5.

🎉 James’ Tips

This week we will take a look at a very typical example of a reasonably proficient second language English speaker who is also a Hong Kong working professional.
.
The candidate is targeting an 8.0 yet due to making some of the most common ‘HK-Eng’ mistakes, is therefore only a the global average for females level of 6.0 in writing.
Can you spot the most damaging mistake?
.
✅❎ James’ comment on the student’s work:
The candidate’s task achievement, and coherence and cohesion, are sound.
A conspicuous lack of complex sentence structures is decisive in lowering the mark, which coupled with a patent lack of more sophisticated lexical items, results in the band’s foregone conclusion.
.
However, the worst and most common mistake the candidate has made, is the repeated incoherence of singular and plural conjugation between subject verb and object. This is even more damaging to the spelling errors, lack of sign posting through the use of discourse markers, inept use of prepositions, or unnatural and inappropriate lexical choices.

James’ Tips

This week we look at a sample by a HK working professional currently targeting a 7.0.
📒 Can you spot the positive and negative objective marking criteria?
1. DO NOT FORGET THE REFERENCE
2. more linkers
3. singular plural incoherence
4. “and” does not qualify as range
5. more descriptives
6. syntax
7. missing “be” verbs
8. conjugation
9. definite article usage
10. prepositions
📘 Comments
Task Achievement is sound; coherence and cohesion lacking due to failure to reference. Some range is evident. More linkers and descriptives could raise performance. Failure to reference will incur a significant penalty, up to 2.0 TA penalty, per examiner prerogative. Spelling errors, singular plural incoherence, and conjugation errors are not tolerated at the 7.0 level. Finally, whereas task 1 is only 40% of the band, theoretically, in practice, it is 100% of the first impression which will influence interpretation of the task 2, and thus, should be done carefully.
